    Like being straight and gay at the same time, but you don't be with one of each at the same time (or even at all).

    Some thing like that ....

    It's like a box of chocolates: some people only like the soft centres, some people only like the hard centres...I scoff the whole damn box.

    Someone who likes men and women. Doesn't mean you have to have dated both, just that you would if the situation presented itself.

    My personal definition is that i'm attracted to two general groups of people: my own gender as well as other genders. That's generally how if explain it, i'm into people :grin: That's hoe simple it is to me
    I think the mere are certainly things abt bi/pan/multisexuality that theke some time explaining like that being bi can mean different things for different ppl and how being bi affects your relationship with the gay and the straight communities but i think that's a story for another time

    I laughed a little too much at this. :grin: What a cute description (And I love chocolate, so might be a bit bias to your reply lol)

    To answer the question: I just say that I like men as well as women. That's the most simple way of explaining it in my opinion. But I will try and remember the chocolate reference XD

    For me it's very similar to what @ravingclaw said. There are different definitions, for some it's men and women, but I personally go with the "same and other" definition. So I like people of my gender and people of other genders. I still like the old but fitting line "I don't care about the plumbing".

    I usually just do it in a comedic way, something a little like:

    "Some people like the Sausage, some like the Taco, but some like both. For me, I like both the Ortegas and the Hillshires."

    A little bit of humor goes a long way.

    Are you a pokemon fan? I'm browsing this site as I'm playing Ultra Moon lol

    That aside, bisexuality is when you fall in love with someone but it can happen to a guy or a girl. The person has no control over it. If they find themselves falling for a a certain gender more often, then they have a preference.
